Gratitude trumps anxiety

As many parts of the world move headlong into the second wave of the Coronavirus pandemic, and possibly, into another series of lockdowns, I want to remind you that gratitude trumps anxiety.

You cannot be grateful and anxious at the same time. And let this serve as a pointer to a superpower that you already possess for dealing with anxious moments.

So this is how it works. Whenever you start to feel anxious about anything at all, switch on your gratitude button, and start to feel grateful for any good thing in your life, right in the midst of that anxious moment. Understand that anxiety and gratitude are like ice and fire; that anxiety simply cannot hold sway in the presence of gratitude. Try it!
